of is romney presidential in a way that he could lead the u.s. on the world stage? we've seen an ad and a memo out today from the obama campaign trying to paint him as belacose, as not ready, and we expect president obama is going to be doing that tonight here in florida. >> one of the other big issues likely to come up tonight is iran. over the weekend i see your "times" article saying the u.s. and tehran had agreed to one-on-one talks about iran's nuclear program after the election. u.s. will deny that. a lot of people might say what's wrong -- regardless, can the president make the case that his strategy on iran is working or does this give mitt romney an opening? >> you know, the answer may be yes to both of those. obviously president obama would make his case that these are the toughest sanctions ever, and that they have been working. you just look at iran's economy. you look at the value of iran's currency, which has plummeted, and he can say the sanctions are working, but, obviously, governor romney can say they're not really shifting iran to changing its behavior. even if everyone expe

's where we are today. the u.s.'s largest trading partners are struggling, and that is strengthening the economic storm that's headed over from europe to the united states shores. this week the international monetary fund cut its forecast for global growth for both this career and next year. that's the world economy and the u.s. economy. the ims cited two reasons things could get worse. first, if european leaders fail to support their ailing economies, and second, if leaders here in the united states let us plunge over the fiscal cliff. the ims sister corporation citing the same two factors cut its growth forecast for asia this week as well. that's for the next couple years. where are we going to be in 2016, four years from now, when we're discussing the next u.s. election. that depends on which of these two roads america takes on election day. i'm going to take you down both paths in this show starting with what 2016 will look look under a president mitt romney. start with jobs. he says 12 million jobs will be created in the next four years. i keep telling you that claim is ridiculo
think he's speaking directly to the report now that the u.s. and the libyans -- rather the u.s. and the iranians are trying to get together and try to have some kind of unilateral talks about what to do with their nuclear program. >> it's one of the sections that have been divided in six. let me direct you back to libya because that was such a hot button topic and it got talking points for a full week afterwards. do we expect the governor will seize on the opportunity to sort of change the conversation about that particular topic and try to get to the heart of the question that was asked, which is who denied security as opposed to arguing over when the words terror were uttered? >> reporter: you know, i think the romney campaign will acknowledge that. in fact, that wasn't a great moment for mitt romney in the last debate. i think he will use it as a jumping off point to talk about in the broader spectrum about the u.s. and how it's viewed globally and how terror right now is changing right now in the middle east. as you said, one of the discussions that will be talked about ton

projects that the united states will be the strongest of the world's rich economies. u.s. growth is forecast to average 3%, much stronger than that was germany or france, at 1.2%, or even canada at 2.3%. increasingly the evidence suggests that the united states has come out of the financial crisis of 2008 in better shape than its peers because of the actions of its government. perhaps the most important cause of america's relative health is the federal reserve. ben bernanke understood the depths of the problem early and responded energetically and creatively. the clearest vindication of his actions has been that the european central bank after charting an opposite course for three years with disastrous results, has now adopted policies similar to the fed's, and thus avoided a potential lehman-like collapse in europe. the leading experts on financial crises argue that the united states is performing better than most countries in similar circumstances in history. consumers are paying down debt, and consumer confidence is at its highest levels since september, 2007. every american r
, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a speech singled out vladimir putin as a basically a foe of the united states and he was doubling down on t
, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you listen to what he is saying here, how much of it do you think is about a failed strategy or what is simply out of the white house's controlt this point, what is going on in the middle east? >> well, a lot of it is clearly out of the white house's control what's happening in the middle east. it doesn't make any difference what the strategy would have been. there are internal developments in north africa and in the middle east that are happening right now, and irrespective of what the u.s. and others can do, those developments are going to go forward for good or for bad. >> his articulation for a continued internationalist role for the united states, because including some of the conservative movements, some republicans who want to have more of an isolationist, a retreat, if you will, from an international involvement, go back to the u.s. borders, stay away from so many issues around the world, cut back on u.s. foreign aid, for example. you h
following the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> just 13 days until the presidential election and the obama and romney campaigns, they are kicking into overdrive as the candidates make their final push to win the white house. cnn correspondents are following their every move. they're reporting from coast to coast and from all the most crucial states, any one of which has the potential to decide who the next president of the united states will be. let's begin this hour's coverage in iowa where president obama kicked off a two-day coast-to-coast swing through eight states. he's calling it a campaign marathon extravaganza. likening it to an all-nighter. no surprise his itinerary consistents almost entirely of battleground states. cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is traveling with the president. >> reporter: wolf, president obama is hopping around the nation stumping for early votes and undecided voters. it's the kind of whirlwind tour you usually see in the last 48 hours before election day. the
out key intelligence from the attack on americans in libya. now, there were three things u.s. intelligence has confirmed to be tree. the attacks were preplanned, terrorist attacks and the work of al-qaeda linked groups. intelligence expert who has worked in the pentagon for two decades tells "outfront" the key information left out of the talking points can only mean the administration is covering something up. u.s. intelligence knew about the link within 24 hours of the attacks and the now infamous comments by susan rice saying the attacks were not preplanned. not the work of terror, were four days after that. this does not add up. intelligence committee chairman mike rogers is our exclusive guest, but first, elyse has the latest. you have been breaking this, this latest story about the white house choosing to leave information out. what are your sources saying as to why the white house left out key points. like the fact that this was a terrorist attack. >> the kronology, the day after the attack, my sources were telling me this was a preplanned military style assault indicat

. people in the u.s. are concerned that a bigger conflict could draw the u.s. into this. >> well, that's right. nobody wants to see this happen. but the concern is would the u.s. be drawn in. the u.s., of course, a part of nato. turkey is a part of nato. so if turkey says they're facing a threat from syria and they're urging the nato allies to help them in some sort of war from syria does that drag in the u.s. even though the u.s. doesn't want to be dragged in. we receive u.s. the past several months provide nonlethal assistance ta to the syrians when it comes to equipment and training but they don't want to further mill i tearize it. they don't want to see the bloodshed continue but they don't want to be involved in the conflict. >> very quickly, what about this new human rights story about syria using cluster bombs. any truth to that? >> it's a very disturbing report. they have evidence that syria, which is one of the few countries in the world that has not banned the use of cluster bombs and have been doing so more cently, especially in the past week. there are a lot of videos showi

"outfront" tonight, peter brooks, nick burns, former u.s. ambassador to nato. good to see you again. nick, let me start with you. senator john mccain, senator graham, senator ayotte were the ones who sent that letter ten days ago. the assistant to the president for homeland security, john brennan was on it and they asked who knew what and when. is it fair to say they're stone walling? >> i don't think it's fair to say that at all. i think it is legitimate to ask what happened that night. why did we lose four great american public service including ambassador chris stevens. what lessons must we learn from that and how do we protect diplomats. that's the question, secretary clinton has ordered an investigation and review of the process led by one of the most respected people in washington, ambassador tom pickering and that process should not be politicized. that committee needs to take the time and the care -- what's happening is this entire process h has been politicized. we ought to put our emphasis on finding out what happened. i think that's where this debate should be. >> i want to tal

information this morning about last month's deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. according to e-mails obtained by cnn, the white house and the state department were informed of a militant islamic group that had claimed credit for the attack. this was two hours after it began. and u.s. diplomats were informing officials in washington about the unfolding assault while it was happening. cnn has those e-mails, foreign affairs reporter elise labott will discuss what they say and the possible fallout joining us next half hour on "early start." >>> a former cia officer admits to a plea deal of one charge he illegally revealed the name of the covert intelligence officer. this man will serve a 30-month sentence. he also revealed the name of a different cia officer to reporters. sentencing will all happen in january. >>> the u.s. supreme court upholds a stay of excuse for a florida man convicted of killing eight people in two separate shootings. john arrow ferguson was scheduled to be put to death by lethal injection last night, but his lawyer successfully filed a flurry of last-minute ap
how much economic growth that will produce. what is clear is that the 1.3% economic growth that u.s. achieved in this second quarter of this year isn't enough to make up for the romney short fall. and with the u.s. economy forecasted to grow by about 3% in 2013 and 2014, romney's plan, as attractive as it sounds, is in doubt. kevin hasset is an economic adviser for the mitt romney campaign and author of some of the economic plans. kevin, romney plans seem to assume that simple act of lowering taxes will generate enough growth to raise the revenue to pay for the steep cost of those cuts. but a lot of economists agree with that notion. it's a classic chicken and egg scenario. i talked to larry summers a couple days ago. he can't get the math to work either. >> it's easy to have an attractive tax plan if your campaign staff can make it up. the reality is that every expert who's looked at it found that cutting taxes by 20% costs $5 trillion. >> okay. let's get down to this. we understand there will be certain revenues that will come in. there will be certain revenues lost. you kept peop
more dangerous under president obama's watch. exhibit a was last month's attack that left a u.s. ambassador dead at the american consulate in libya. >> the attacks on america last not should not be seen as random acts. they're expressions of a larger struggle playing out across the broader middle east and i'll vigorously pursue the terrorists who attacked our consulate in benghazi and killed our fellow americans. >> reporter: romney then seized on the recently violence in syria and the potential for an iranian nuclear weapon to issue a dire warning, that war in the region could be on the horizon. >> it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> reporter: the gop nominee pledged to get tough by reversing looming defense cuts coming at the end of the year, threatening to impose possible new sanctions on iran and by looking for ways to arm the rebels in syria. romney also said he would pursue a two-state solution between the israelis and palestinians, a concept he seemed to diminish at a fund-raiser at was secretly recorded
policy, rather something decidedly american. the u.s. auto industry. >> if we had taken your advice, governor romney about, our auto industry, we would be buying cars from china instead of selling cars to china. i'm a son of detroit. i was born in detroit. my dad was head of a car company. i like american cars. i would do nothing to hurt the u.s. auto industry. the companies need to go through a management of bankruptcy. >> that's not what you said. >> take a look at -- >> governor romney, you did not say you would provide help. >> we would provide guarantees. and that was what was able to allow these companies to go through bankruptcy, to come out of bankruptcy. >> let's check the record. >> that is the height of silliness. >> reporter: now cnn's poll did show that overall the president won this debate, at least that's what the viewers voting thought. but if you look at what the goal of mitt romney was to be seen as commander in chief, he didn't do so bad. look quickly at the polls. can romney handle the job of commander in chief? yes, 60%. asked the same question about the preside

seven times and tyler hamilton road with him on the u.s. postal service team for four years. he's one of teb former teammates who testified to the u.s. anti-doping agency that armstrong had doped. the agency released its damaging report this week showing that it had uncovered, "overwhellaliell evidence of armstrong's drug use." no reason why they doped for the big races. >> the first time i ever blood doped was with lance and it was certainly for lance, basically. you know, i blood doped myself. you know, it was done by the team but done for the tour de france so i could be a good teammate for lance armstrong. yeah, a lot of it, you know, he wanted you to be riding at your best in the biggest races and for lance it was all about winning the tour de france. >> well, lance armstrong has always denied doping and his attorney calls the report a witch hunt. >>> people in los angeles are used to seeing big stars on the streets, but today they have one of the biggest ever hanging around town. how big? well, let's try 85 tons. it is the space shuttle "endeavour." the shuttle is being moved th
the year. here it is in 1994 running again ted kennedy for the u.s. senate seat in massachusetts. >> i believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. i have since the time that my mom took that position when she ran in 1970 as a u.s. senate candidate. >> now fast forward to last year. here's mitt romney trying to capture the gop presidential nomination. >> what i'd like to see happen would be for the supreme court to say, look, we're going to overturn row v. wade and return to the states the authority to design whether they want abortion on or not state by state. that's how it was before roev. wade. i'm pro-life. >> less than two weeks ago he spoke to the editorial board of "the des moines register" and he seemed more unclear on the issue. he said there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. so, if mitt does win and he does set an agenda, what will it include with regards to abortion? this literally could turn the entire election. barbara comstock is a romney campaign senior adviser. good to see you again.
of the middle east and its many recent flash points like the fatal terrorist attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. romney is trying to polish his own spotty record on foreign affairs and he faces some public doubts. according to to a cnn/orc poll 52% of americans believe obama is better at handling foreign affairs. 45% say romney. cnn national political correspondent jim acosta is at the virginia military institute where romney will speak in just a little over two hours. good morning, jim. >> reporter: good morning, carol. that's right. after what was widely perceived as a big victory for mitt romney on the issue of domestic policies at that first presidential debate, he's going to be going after the president on foreign policy at that speech at the virginia military institute here in lexington later on this morning. and the campaign did release some excerpts from the speech that we could look at to sort of see where he might be going with this address later on this morning. a few things to point out, carol. he's going to be going after the president as you mentioned just a few moments a
are demanding answers about that attack at the u.s. consulate in libya that left the ambassador and two other americans dead. the attack defendant's exhibit happen the way the obama administration initially said it may have. this violence does not start with a span takenus protest over a now notorious saent islam film. let's get straight to some of the details now. jill dougherty joining us now from the u.s. state department. what are they expected to set straight? >> very interesting reading. some of these documents. there are statements coming out by the key people who will be testifying today. they -- i have been reading through them, and i think there were a couple of very important moments. that came essentially from the u.n. ambassador, susan rice, and in the testimony by ambassador patrick kennedy, which we expect to hear, he says that any official who was in -- was testifying at that particular time that she did, which was on the 16th five days later, the 16th of september, five days after the attack, would have said the very same thing. it was based on the information that was known
issue on the minds of americans. it's been that way since late 2007 when the u.s. economy went into a recession, and how do americans feel about which candidate is doing a better job on the economy right now? they were split going into the first debate. we'll take a look at polling coming out that was conducted after the first debate. again, right there, can you see that number. that 48%, that really says it all. the economy is the most important issue on the minds of american voters, and what's the most important economic issue, jobs, randi? >> which is why there is so much heated debate about those most recent jobs numbers. paul, thank you very much. we added 114,000 jobs last month, look at the latest numbers when it comes to jobs in manufacturing. the industry lost 16,000 jobs. but manufacturing is an important industry for many swing states, especially along the rustbelt, including small times like goshen, indiana, where our ted rowlands gives us context to those numbers. >> reporter: this is in elk hart county, indiana, an area absolutely hammeringed during the recession,
secretary of state hillary clinton is saying about the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, the september 11 attack left four americans dead, including the u.s. ambassador. cnn foreign affairs reporter broke the story with an exclusive interview during the secretary's trip to peru. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department, 60,000 plus people all over the world, 275 post, the president and the vice president certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. in the wake of an attack like this, in the fog of war, there's always going to be confusion, and i think it is absolutely fair to say that everyone had the same intelligence. everyone who -- >> bad intelligence, it seems. >> everyone who spoke tried to give the information as they had. as time has gone on, the information has changed. we've gotten more detail. but that's not surprising. that always happens. and what i want to avoid is some kind of political got ya or blame game going on. >> and we have just got word into the president on this as we
foothold. he was also worried that there was no deterrents to act against those groups, and the u.s. security presence was shrinking rapidly. the ambassador noted that this was becoming a huge issue and a huge problem for them. and that the drawdown from some 34 u.s. security personnel to 27 in july, he noted once again in august that that number was expected to drop to seven. the ambassador was very concerned about the creation of a security vacuum, noting that he couldn't rely on local security to fill that gap. another cable just before the attacks noted that host nation support is lacking and cannot be depended on to create a safe environment. a week before the attacks, a cable sent from benghazi noted that police have established a 24/7 response to the mission, but that raises the question, where were those personnel once that attack began? >> right. it also raises the question, was there anything that could have been done to prevent the attack at the consulate? >> right. and that's always what people want to know. this sort of monday morning quarterbacking. once all the pieces
americans are looking at our u.s. markets as being very, very cheap. so you look at a big chunk of those buyers in florida, for example, on foreign buyers. so many americans are taking advantage of these lower interest rates. also rental rates have gone up so much that the cost of ownership right now in many instances after taxes is less money than it costs to rent. the big challenge, though, is we're not getting enough people able to move up out of their existing houses. we're not getting enough people to relocate because they're stuck in their homes even though they're current on their mortgages, even though they qualify for their mortgages, the homes are worth so much less than their current mortgage amounts. they can't get out and they can't refinance. and so there's got to be a new policy that comes in to address that challenge. >> ali, could i mention something about housing for a second? i want to pat myself on the back for a minute here, because as you know, for the last year or two, i've been somewhat bullish on real estate and housing, and i think we are seeing, this gentleman
fiery exchanges was not about foreign policy but rather something decidedly american, the u.s. auto industry. >> if we had taken your advice about the auto industry, we would be buying car from china instead of selling cars to china. >> i am a son of detroit. i was born in detroit. my dad was head of a car company. i like american cars. i would do nothing to hurt the u.s. auto industry. i said the companies need to go through a managed bankruptcy. fortunately the president -- >> that's not what you said. >> you can take a look at the op-ed. >> you did not say that you would provide help. >> i said we would provide guarantees and that was what was able to allow the companies to go through bankruptcy and come out of bankruptcy. >> check the record. >> that's the height of silliness. >> let me bring dana bash in live from boca. this was supposed to be a foreign policy debate and seemed to frequently stray back to domestic policy and we think that was part of the plan. >> you would be right. especially for mitt romney who thinks that that is really his wheelhouse in terms of his own exp
of four americans, including the u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stevens. we know who he is. we know where he is, who's got him and whether american interrogators will be able to get at him. in addition tonight, we've got new insight into just how quick liu the state department knew about the military sophistication of the actual assault. frank townsend will join us shortly. along with former cia officer bob baer. and you'll hear as well from soern john mccain. you by want to start with the suspect and a "360" exclusive. earlier reporting said access to the suspect was being blocked. intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly has learned otherwise. she joins us now. what have you heard? >> well, we've heard from a u.s. government official that the u.s. does fully intinned and expect to get access to this individual. there's a little bit of negotiating going on. there's a process in place. the fbi is expected to take the lead on this negotiation, though intelligence officials are also expected to be in the room when he's questioned. >> so it's not clear -- so fbi will take the lead on i
spontaneously gathered because of the video and decided to charge the u.s. embassy and had killed the u.s. ambassador, two navy s.e.a.l.s and another american that is still an act of terrorism. it is the taking of the lives of civilians in a political act that is designed to have some kind of political impact. it strikes me as an act of trer i terrorism. was it affiliated with al qaeda with planing and forethought that we don't know. but i don't see how it wasn't an act of terrorism no matter who did it. do you think he missed an opportunity focusing on the word terrorism as opposed to the nearly 14 days of whatever it was that they were still unclear about what happened? >> and continue, governor romney had good cards and he over played them and he was able to push them back pretty hard and he played them. >> nor are we at the point where the administration is selling a false narrative. but there are four people dead and it is serious. the question that is hanging in the air here is was the libya war a good idea? president obama has two wars, afghanistan which he escalated and libya whic
